  1. DODGE CITY was certainly a lot of fun, one I will want to see again soon. I’ve really enjoyed seeing a lot of Michael Curtiz films lately.


  2. I LOVE Dodge City, there’s just something about it that moves it ahead of the regular flock of Westerns for me. I’ve read that Olivia wasn’t too pleased about being cast in it but I can’t quite see why. Her character of Abbie is an intelligent strong woman who has no problem telling off Errol Flynn. This is prime Flynn too, as long as you don’t think too much about why he speaks with a clipped mixed English/Australian accent, he, Alan Hale and Guinn Williams make great saddle mates.

    I’m also a fan of Cry Terror! It’s an involving drama with an interestingly varied cast and one of my beloved Inger Stevens better roles. Also a surprisingly venal Angie Dickinson.
